Fuel Purchase SystemTM (FPS) Overview for Carriers
Fuel costs directly impact your bottom line and, like every other carrier in the country, you know that effective fuel management is key to the viability of your business. Unfortunately, you're probably incurring unnecessary fuel related expenses by using the outdated card based fuel transaction methods that have been unchanged in the trucking industry for the past thirty plus years.
FPSTM is a technologically advanced solution that provides a direct connection between you and the truck stop POS to create a secure, integrated, comprehensive purchasing process. This improved visibility and control of your fleet's fuel usage and procurement could be the change needed to make your fuel network improvement initiatives successful.
Using either RFID technology or mobile communication "macro" technology to issue a unique, "limited life" Purchase Order for each fuel transaction increases the accuracy of your fuel records.
Sub-transactions are linked to the overall transaction PO but recorded as separate events allowing for efficient, error free electronic reconciliation and analysis of tractor fuel vs. trailer fuel vs. cash advances.
FPS maintains a "Virtual Tank Inventory" and uses consumption data to apply limits on fuel transactions to help you manage your fuel costs.
Your drivers' data entry tasks will be significantly reduced, if not eliminated altogether, making their time at the pump more efficient and error free.
RFID technology (cardless transactions) ensures that the fuel you're paying for is going to the right asset (truck/reefer unit), protecting you against theft and fraud.

Carrier Savings Potential
As you well know, fuel related costs involve much more than just the numbers at the pump. Beyond money lost to fraud, theft and inefficient driving habits, there are administrative costs related to reconciliation, fuel tax reporting errors, and driver dissatisfaction at the fuel island. In addition, assigning fuel transactions to a card instead of a specific truck or trailer can lead to inaccurate fuel consumption data.
With QuikQ's streamlined FPSTM fuel transaction solution your enterprise can redefine your fuel management processes to save the time and money you'd otherwise be losing.
